Saying What Others Have Said, So You Can Say What You Want to Say: Writing a Literature Review
Presented by J. Michael Rifenburg
One of the more popular college writing textbooks is called “They Say / I Say.” The premise of this book is that all writers, from first-year students to full professors, ground their arguments in current arguments. No one writes in a vacuum. Academics use the phrase “literature review” to capture the “They Say” part of arguments. But while many of us know what a literature is supposed to do, actually writing a literature review is one of the more challenging parts of academic writing. This presentation covers common moves inherent in literature reviews across various disciplines. By pointing to examples and breaking apart these examples, participants arrive at a stronger sense of how to build an effective literature review.
These one-hour Friday Writing Sessions are designed to provide advice on key parts of the academic writing process and connect you with other faculty at UNG who are taking on research and writing projects. All sessions will be live on Zoom and video-recorded for archival reasons.
